last weekend we had our family get together.We all met up for a pub lunch in Tutbury.It was mid afternoon before we moved off.C and I had spotted an adventure playground that was suitable for older children so this is where we headed.Matt and Jude walked their dog,Ozzy,by the river Dove and we stayed with Sarah and Mike,their two children and Matt's three.We are 11 in all ranging in age from Ruby at 9 and Grandpa at 75.The rain started about 4 pm so we went and booked in at our hotel.This was The Boars Head at Draycott in the Clay about 9 miles from Ashbourne in Derbyshire.This a great venue as they have a lounge for residents which is great for us.Before and after dinner we played various games and battered and joked etc.There is always a lot of laughter when we get together.Sunday morning we went to Sudbury Museum of Childhood before heading off in different directions.We decided to have circuitous drive home going via Matlock,Bakewell Buxton and Congleton and then back home to N.E.Wales.To be honest we were a little disappointed with the scenery but living in North Wales we are spoiled.
this weekend is another busy one.This morning we met four friends for coffee and this afternoon we have been to the cinema to see God's Own Country.Pizza for tea and then Strictly Come Dancing.Tomorrow it is Open Day at Theatr Clwyd and as I have never been backstage I really fancy going.(We usually clean on a Sumday morning but it can wait).Tomorrow afternoon we are going to Ness Gardens where there is a free lecture on Parkgate(on the Wirral).It is a fascinating place where we often walk and then have lunch.Monday I am meeting a friend for coffee.Cis at his French group.Tuesday morning one of our closest friends is giving a talk on Artists from St Ives in Cornwall for our U3A Art Appreciation Group and then we are at the cinema again at 5pm to see Victoria and Abdul.Thursday back at Theatr Clwyd( where the Film Theatre is) to see The Rise and Fall of Little Voice!!
When am I going to find any time to knit???!!!!
Glad you had a great time. We pass throgh Draycott-in-the-Clay when we drive to Burton-on-Trent. Sudbury is wonderful isn't it? Enjoy your busy week ahead:)ReplyDelete
It sounds like you had a wonderful time. We used to have lots of these type of family get togethers when my parents were younger and in better health and when the children in the family were younger too, great times. I'd be interested to hear what you thought about God's Own Country and Victoria and Abdul, both films I quite fancy myself.ReplyDelete
